Ranch House

This came paired with the split level house in Aurora's kit (4158). The original colors were a bit odd, randomly alternating between white and tan walls, with brown woodwork save for one oddball white window, and baby blue shutters. I decided to go for a quasi-retro-modern combination of black woodwork and shutters on white walls, with a grey slate roof—close to the original colors, but more believably consistent. I made no structural changes, but I did omit the monstrous gutters and downspouts (they're oversize for HO!), and also the trellis at the back door, since it won't be visible. Also, for reasons unknown, this was the first kit I finished.
